Xbox One Not Backwards Compatible with 360 Games

by BarryMay 21, 2013

In an interview with The Verge Marc Whitten (Xbox Live VP) confirmed that Xbox One will not feature Xbox 360 backwards compatibility.

This was to be expected with the switch to a different Hardware Architecture making it somewhat difficult – the same problem suffered by the PS4.

Speaking to The Verge he said:

The system is based on a different core architecture, so back-compat doesn’t really work from that perspective.

We’ll have more on the Xbox One as we get it.
